Subject: Good Foundation
After 40 years, I still have not tired of Pastor Chuck's teaching. Under his tutelage, I have gone through the entire Bible, chapter by chapter, verse by verse, I don't know how many times. I'm glad God raised him up during these latter days.

Yes, I remember in school that scientists once said bumblebees couldn't fly. They got stung on that theory. Then the "cranberries cause cancer". Another lie exposed. Also Baseball pitchers couldn't throw a curve ball. Video proved them wrong again. Then there is this Darwin clown and his theory of evolution. I didn't come from a monkey. I believe scientist are the worst money grabbers GOD ever created.

For those who are further interested in spiritual depth and personal spiritual growth, a few other books may be of real help to you. [ Free in all formats, including PDF and Kindle]

For the issues of Today’s church, a few works about the Modern dangers of some of the excesses found in many the Charismatic or other groups may inform you about the origins, the roots, the theology and the implications of some of these new streams of spirituality, such as:

[ Anointing - or Apostasy ? The Latter Rain Legacy by Charles Graves].

[ Latter Rain (and other Branham inspired charismatic ) movement by Jewel van der Merwe) ].

[ A Planned Deception, the staging of a New Age Messiah) ].
(or see the Historic perspective on who is the real Messiah)

[ Do we keep smiling and say nothing – The Report on KCF (Kansas City) Produced by Ernie Gruen & Staff – The original AUDIO MP3 message].

[ Do we keep smiling and say nothing – The Report on KCF (Kansas City) Produced by Ernie Gruen & Staff – The Written book of documentation].


[ Who is the Messiah proved from the Ancient Scriptures) ].

[ The Affiliation of New Evangelicals with Apostasy].

[ What is Apostasy by M de Semlyen].

[ A LITTLE HISTORY - [ Truth about ] The Shepherding Movement].

[ Problems with the Sacred Name movement ].


(( Please note that NOT ALL Charismatic or Pentecostal groups or churches are bad or teach errant doctrine. [some change or improve 4 the better].. However it is important to check on the details of where you worship, fellowship and learn, so that you can be sure that you are receiving sound doctrine (Titus 1:9 and not those in Tim 4: 3-4). ))


The real history of the Pagan Mystery Religions which is where all is returning to can be found in the much referred to [ The Two Babylons ]. and in Mysteries of the Cabiri; or, The great gods of Phenicia, Samothrace, Egypt, Greece, etc, Vol 01, [ VOL 01 – GSF]. Vol 02 [ VOL 02 – GSF ]. by G S Faber.
( Note: the worship of Nimrod-Zeus and his wife, - [ contrary to what is alleged by many in the sacred name movement] - is different from the Genuine worship of the genuine Jesus Christ found in actual . accurate versions . of the New Testament) ..


For the history of Biblical teachings, (also known as Doctrine), some of the works of George Stanley Faber (and others) may be of encouragement.

[ The difficulties of infidelity (1835) – GSF- George Stanley Faber ].

[ peculiarities of the Latin church evinced to be untenable – GSF ].

[ A practical treatise on the ordinary operations of the Holy Spirit (1814) – GSF ].

[ The new life in Christ Jesus ].


For those interested in the deeper background of the Old Testament scripture [ keep in mind that 40% to 60% of the New Testament is the Old Testament requoted]. Everything done in the New Testament is still being done in relation to the Old Testament. ( Note: Those who know almost nothing about the Old Testament section of the Bible would do well to start reading and re-reading both in the book of Psalms and the book of Proverbs).


[ A Treatise On The Origin Of Expiatory Sacrifice (1827) – GSF].
[ The Temple, its ministry and services as they were at the time of Jesus Christ].
[ The hope of Israel [microform] what is it (MAURO)].
[ Horae Mosaicae, or, A view of the Mosaical records – GSF ].


The issue of Bible versions still remains popular and a subject for study:

[ The English Revisers' [Wescott - Hort] Greek Text - Shown to be Unauthorized, Except by false [errant] Egyptian Copies Discarded].

[ The traditional text of the Holy Gospels vindicated and established].

[ The books of the Old and New Testaments proved to be true, accurate and canonical, and their verbal inspiration maintained].


[ The evidence and authority of divine revelation – 01 – Haldane ].

[ The evidence and authority of divine revelation - 02 – Haldane].

[ A Plea for the [Inspiration and] Canon of Scripture ( Bible) by the Bible Society].




[ Secret History of the Oxford Movement [Evangelicals in England induced to defect to Rome] [i.e. Westcott & Hort]].

[ Pope Benedict's Denunciation ].

[ Evangelicals Embark to Papal Rome].

[ The revision revised - Westcott and Hort's new textual theory].

[ Divine inspiration; or, The supernatural influence exerted in the communication of divine truth-HENDERSON].

[ The question discussed, Shall the whole word of God be given to the heathen -HENDERSON].


[ Hidden history of the Greek New Testament].

--- concerning the Apocrypha --- (see also the section under versions, since the issue of versions [ which version of the OT – NT to use] also involves the issue of which books belong in the Bible [called Canonization]. Many books on versions therefore also deal with the issue of which books belong in the Bible, or which ones do not ).


The issues of the printing of the Apocrypha has been somewhat addressed in the following works:
For those interested in the issues concerning the Apocrypha (declared even by Jerome to not be part of scripture), the following books may give you some information and historic information:


[ Vindications (about BFBS) of the Proceedings of the Bible Society Concerning the Apocrypha].

[ Revealed: the conduct of the directors of the British and Foreign Bible Society [ BFBS ] concerning the Apocrypha].

Other works about Church History may be interesting:

[ Evidence of Holy Scripture and the Eary Church, Against the Invocation of Saints, Angels, and Mary].

For those interested in Current Events (nwo) , the work of Attorney C Cumbey may be of interest

[ Rome and the European Union - M de Semlyen ].

[ Biblical Unity or Conformity to Rome? M de Semlyen ].

[ The number of man 6-6-6 ].

The work of Scofield . and Darby . is beyond this posting. But their work . is sometimes presented as controversial beause of their success. and their [ orthodoxy].. (In other words, they lined up with the overwhelming majority of the historic doctrines of Christianity. Many still do not know this, simply bcause they have not read their works.)

===========

History of the Karaite [non-talmudic orthodox ] Jews (1870)

As the Karaites affirm: Nothing with them is authoritative which is not Divine. God only is to them the fountain of authority. They profess a willingness to submit to Him, and to submit at any cost. This is the normal principle of Karaism. They state that they pay unbounded reverence to the Written Law of God, contained in the Old Testament. They utterly reject what is called the Oral Law, and is now contained in the Talmud. This is an interesting contrast to what passes for traditional Orthodox Judaism, which is very different from simply following the Old testament. This is not what orthodox Judaism is these days.

Today it has degenerated mostly into occult talmudic Judaism with the constant study of the Talmudic occultism [ which seems to have a rather close resemblance to much material found in The Two Babylons by Hislop] . In the same way that those in Islam should compare the characteristics of Allah with those of Almighty God, those who are Othodox talmudic occultic Rabbis should be willing to compare their worship of their “First Cause” with the God of the Old Testament.

There are many resources. here. If you are deceived or led astray, it is only your fault and you are the one to blame. We are each responsiblefor. our own spiritual path, and the information and learning we chose to epose ourselves to, or deny or ignore or postpone. Like everything else, your spiritual connection and walk with God is what You make of it. The Bible is filled with information. [ not disclosed or talked about in Churches]..You have to read the New Testament for yourself. [ the Gospel of John is a good place to start, and remember to use a good, histori and accurate version. It is not what you “theoretically” want to do, or wish to do, that counts. If you are deceived spiritually, what difference will it make, that you “were going to study” or you were “ going to learn” ? Will you be... any less deceived, because you were going to [in the future] actually invest the time in yourself to learn ???

Take the time and learn n-o-w, while you can.

Do you remember the words of scripture :

II Timothy 2: 15 Study [ STUDY !!! ] to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly [RIGHTLY] dividing the word of truth.
16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.


II Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.


Its what you actually [ ACTUALLY !!! ] do, what you actually[ ACTUALLY !!! ] study. Stop waiting for others to help you, and start helping yourself. The day will soon come when none of this may be around, and then all you will have is what you know, in your head, in your own mind.

Pray for yourself that you will wake up from your coma, that you would have a love of God, a love of His true and authentic Word (Bible), a deep desire to study the Word, and that God would show you how to have the spiritual and personal inner strength for these times. Pray that you would not waste your time, but that you would value and do what God wants you to do and value., and that HE would help you find the answers you are looking for.


What people MUST believe about God, in order to find Him and why Faith in God is neccessary ------- Hebrews 11: 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

To restate the obvious:
YOU = “ he that cometh to God “
MUST BELIEVE:
1) that he is, [ That God exists] , and
2) that he is a rewarder of them that diligently [ DILIGENTLY !!! ] seek him.



Luke 21: 8
8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

II Thess 2
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness ... because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

( what did they receive not ? This means that there is something that certain ones chose not to receive. What is that ?? )

----

Example: what they often don’t talk about in church:

Titus 2: 1
2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
7 In all things showing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine showing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
9 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;
10 Not purloining, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Subject: nice expository
chuck has a heart for God and it is evident here. this is not for someone who wants a word by word reading of the text but rather making it more understandable to the folks who are not theologians. enjoyable, however if you dont understand what a christian is then its kinda like reading someone elses mail...wont make a lot of sense.

Subject: Old Time Radio it is not but good none-the-less
I went to Calvary Chapel Bible College in the late 90's and it was required for students to go through the entire scripture with Chuck Smith. This is NOT old time radio and it should be moved to a section that better describes it. But I do recommend it as a great way to learn the scriptures. Chuck is a gifted teacher.

One note though for any CC pastors reading this; After going through the Bible with Chuck using these old tapes from the 70's and 80's I became a Partial Preterist and an A-millenialist and rejected Pre-Trib, Pre-Millenial teachings taught by CC...and Hal Lindsey types.

Hearing 30 year old interpretation of the end times exposes the weakness and lack of scholarship on those issues.

Subject: Complete Insanity
This audio is the most complete nonsense to ever be contrived. The speaker finds the most fantastical hallucinations to base his facts on. He tries to paint scientists as absolute fools while he is interpreting the bible (a historic fairy tale) by fishing nonsense from disreputable sources to substantiate his claims.
This man actually claims(!!!) that all fossils come from the great flood!! The insanity is accepted by his audience who cheer and clap hands.The world needs to be protected from men like this, let me put it this way if he had a knife in his hand I would be very scared.
I know freedom of speech exists but I think that this sort of thing really shouldnt be allowed in this archive.
Reviewer: LeGrande - - September 8, 2008
Subject: When was this broadcast?
If it was broadcast before 1962, then it qualifies as OTR by virtue of its date of broadcast, and would be worthy not just for its spiritual message but for its historical message about the things pastors would preach about during the Golden Age of Radio--a social commentary of sorts.

If it was broadcast after 1962, then since it is not audio theater, it would not qualify under the current OTR meme, which allows Monitor and The CBS Mystery Theater to qualify, and perhaps would allow the sketches from A Prairie Home Companion to qualify when they finally become public domain sometime in the 386th century, given Congress' apparent mission to try keep everything after 1923 not already in public domain under copyright protection.

A religious OTR show (that is still current if I recall correctly) is "Unshackled." Pastor Chuck Smith's reading and commentary is no "Unshackled," no matter how inspired the message.

Unless someone (such as the original poster) can demonstrate that it was produced and broadcast before 1962 (a program log from a newspaper would suffice, or a copy of one of the messages with its broadcast date would also suffice), I would also suggest that it be moved to Open Source Audio.

This is a critical explination of the bible. Regularly presented weekly on the radio from study and preparation of the bible and its supporting documents and resources. If one thinks the bible is a mystry, Pastor Chuch Smith clarifies what one may read...if one reads the Bible. This is not comedy, but it does lift ones load ligtens ones work. This is to be enjoyed by thinking people.

Subject: This isn't OTR...
This isn't an OTR program...it really belongs under another heading of "Open Source Audio".

Just because it might have been on the radio sometime, somewhere, doesn't make it OTR under the traditional definition.

Subject: Not what you think
Contrary to the headline, this is NOT the Bible read by Pastor Smith. Instead, it's a commentary and uncritical explanation of the bible's text.
Much of it is very interesting, albeit a bit evangelical at times.
